Weekend Recap & A Recipe

Sigh....happy was a good weekend. One of those weekends that you end with feeling tired but filled. We had friends for dinner, went blackberry picking, did a little thrift shopping, zipped to church and lots more! Here are few pictures for you :)
The sweet joy of being in a field, picking fresh fruit and listening to the squeals of delight from your children.....ahhhhh
Vintage coke bottles and flowers from the yard! 
I love this sign; it sums up our life right now very well.  I did not like the price....I think a DIY post will be coming down the chute ;)
Bill's Sangria
3 bottles of Pinot Grigio
1 pint of strawberries sliced
2 lemons sliced
2 oranges sliced
3 peaches sliced
1 litter of chilled sparkling water
4 cups frozen whole strawberries

Mix the wine and fruit in a large bowl and let set for 4 hours. Before serving add the cold sparkling water to the bowl and stir. Place a few frozen strawberries in each glass before filling. Enjoy! 
Have a glorious Monday! And don't forget the GIVEAWAY is still open!


  1. ko, I think we all need that sign hanging in our homes this summer, it's how my days are unfolding! :)

  2. That sangria looks delicious. I just may have to make it sometime this week. Just because. :)

  3. I wish I lived by the ocean, then I could hang up that perfect sign! Love the clouds rolling in :)

  4. What a great post! Your kids are blessed to have such a good-spirited mama.
    Love that sign! I miss living super close to the beach...
